Question
I have completed a needlepoint brick cover but have no idea what the best way to assemble to cover the brick is. I don't want to cut the  mesh until I know for sure, but I can't find an answer anywhere!  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer
Hi Debbi,

I've answered several questions about needlepoint bricks; they seem to be popular!  Here are the links to my previous answers:

There is no "best" way to do a brick cover; the few that I've done have all been finished a bit differently from each other, trying out different methods of folding and stitching the corners. In one of the answers I linked above, I cited a book that has good instructions for finishing a brick.
